But it’s not true, Hayao Miyazaki‘s Studio Ghibli is famous for using hand-drawn animation in their projects and French animator Sylvain Chomet uses the technique in his features. Disney’s 2009 film The Princess and the Frog was also hand-drawn, although it was an exception rather than the rule and ended a six-year drought on hand-drawn features. So it’s still there, if a little niche-y. But paving the way for the future is this short Paperman from Walt Disney Animation Studios and director John Kahrs. The film seamlessly merges hand-drawn and computer-generated techniques using custom in-house software called Meander, which allows animators to combine the different practices and exploit the best of both. 100 Incredible Lectures from the World's Top Scientists.

Mindfuck. Talking Funny. Nico Vega - Beast. 90 Minutes With Richard Feynman. The name Richard Feynman should at least sound familiar, if not because of his work in physics then because his zombie is such a big fan of the Mythbusters.

90 Minutes With Richard Feynman

Either way, the BBC Horizon documentary “Richard Feynman-No Ordinary Genius” is well worth your time, and deserves more than the mere 150,000 views it has garnered. Like Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, Feynman was a talented thinker, teacher, and speaker–the essential skill set of any science rock star. But the video makes it clear that Feynman’s greatest gift was his unique, even eccentric personality, which allowed him to approach difficult scientific problems in new ways. Feynman was profoundly curious, a nature that extended well beyond his academic specialty. After becoming friends with artist Jirayr Zorthian, Feynman spent eight years trading him physics lessons for drawing instruction, eventually becoming an accomplished draftsman.
